    Anyone in the UK, New Look shoes are surprisingly comfy and wear very well!

    I know, but I don't have the money to make the initial investment.

    Yeah, that was a few years ago. There's a massive thread on scam.com with mixed feedback and a ton of other stuff online, its sort of hard to tell if I'd be safe just sending under fifty bucks to someone. I'm not worried about the merchant scamming me, they only want me to pay after I've received the goods and they're to my satisfaction. It seems like alertpay is more likely to fuck over the merchants dealing with 1000$+ than the buyers.

    Last week Hanes had a sale on underwear and socks, so i stocked up on new underwear and socks. The package comes in today, and the picture on the underwear packing shows a red tag. "No. NOOOOOO! I ordered the black tag, the black tag!!!!"

    Fortunately, opening them showed that they were in fact black tagged, and the picture was wrong. Crisis averted.

    does the tag colour matter?

    I just discovered the two Alienware laptops we have with blown video cards will net me enough resell value to upgrade my computer.

    The black tag underwear has a smooth bottom, which is infinitely more comfortable than the red tag's butt seams.

    I... might have. Why?

    edit: oh, saw your second post. I've never had them fuck me over, although the service is definitely not hassle free.

    I'm amazed that Bioware sells the N7 hoodie, which I agree is one of the few pieces of gaming clothing I'd wear, and also sells this monstrosity:

    Please exercise caution when wearing the hood all the way zipped up, because you will look fully awesome, and members of the general public may be caught a bit off-guard.

    The worst part of the n7 armor hoodie (edit:the bad hoodie, not the tasteful one we'd all wear) is the pricetag. Thirty five dollars more than the already costly regular N7 hoodie.

    103kW? And the 6 speed DSG? Great engine, good gearbox. Some people find it a little clunky at low speeds, but it seems fairly smooth to me.

    That would be the one! I sometimes notice it being a little sluggish immediately after I pull out of my drive, but everywhere else it's smooth. Maybe it needs a minute or so to warm up? I don't know if that's even possible, but in my non-gearhead brain that is how I've rationalized it. On the whole I'm really happy with it, and it's a blast to drive.

    Of course, my last car was a 15 year old Jeep...

    i once had an acer motherboard catch fire.

    Apparently it wasn't an unknown fault in the mother board.

    They've gotten better since.
